The Pitth are a Minor Non-Human Race with a non-humanoid appearance and technologically sophisticated sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Pitth are tri-sexual beings, of various dimensions but massing between 50 and 300 kilograms as adults. They look much like jellyfish, and spend their initial century of life in the oceans. After their reproductive period is over, they undergo a metamorphosis, and spend the remaining four to five centuries of life floating in the air.

They are extremely powerful illusionists, are reasonably capable in telekinesis and electokinesis (control of electrons and electricity), and have some limited ability in pyrokinesis. The Pitth have no abilities in clairvoyance, precognition, mind control, or other ESP. A very small number of Pitth have the chronokinestic ability to manipulate the flow of space-time to a limited extent (a few meters/a few hours); this ability is kept secret even from official Imperial psionic researchers. The Pitth are extremely powerful telepaths, but their minds are far too deeply alien to communicate directly with the Six Races: written and pictorial forms of communications are more reliable in transmitting meaning that can be understood

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Pitth claim to have never met the Ancients, and fix their arrival in this region of space at an exact point in time: March 26, 18 BC, at 04:44.2105 Imperial Time, during the era of Vilani rule. They consider themselves to be multidimensional explorers and small-scale settlers, uninterested in interstellar empire, but very interested in the development of sophont thought and interstellar societies over time.
